I've gained close to sixty pounds this past year and I can't seem to lose it. (Fortunately, I'm tall and I can hide it well. However, I'm beginning to look and feel like a Butterball turkey.) My phychiatrist said Depakote is the culprit. What is the reason behind Depakote and weight gain? (I am unwilling to change meds for I finally found the right combination of drugs that keep me sane.
I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
This can occur to women and men (both). More info HYPOTHYROIDISM (Underactive thyroid) The most common cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto's thyroiditis. In this condition, the body's immune system mistakenly attacks the thyroid gland.

I currently take Lamictal 150 mgs (mood stabilizer) and thyroid medication for hypothyroidism. I have been off the Zyprexa for about 2 weeks and the Lex for about 1 week. I was suicidal and depressed during w/d from the Z and now with the Lex w/d I am suicidal, nauseated and dizzy, and my moods range from irritable to sad and withdrawn. I am also emotional for the first time in a couple of years. I was briefly hospitalized last year after coming off Paxil cold turkey.

I went to a psychologist and he put me on Zyprexa about a week ago. I also went to the allergy doctor about 2 weeks ago and they put me on allegra. I also went to the endocrinologist about 2 weeks ago and he said nothing was wrong. I have taken blood tests and my calcium level is slighty high, my billiruben was also slighty high. Also I tried exercising to make me feel better but that put me in a depressed mood and made me feel worse.
32 My daughter has over the last two years had several diagnosis, the prevailing symptom slowness of response, yet two ocassions of pscyhotic episodes. She was just hospitalized for the first time and a thryoid panel identified hypothyroidism. They have introduced synthyroid and continue also to treat with antipsychotics. What are the symptoms of hypothyroidism that may present as a mental illness.
so we can talk about this condition. and discuss what we can do about it and what treatments are available for it. is anyone interested?
As a side note I also take zyprexa becausse I am bi polar and I did put on weight initially but I go to the gym and lift weights and I have dropped about 25 lbs with more coming off. I think it takes a little more work for those of us on SSRIs to lose weight but I am living proof it can be done.
25 mg) Flonase Astelin Vyvanse ( 70 mg) Dextroamphetamine IR( 10 mg) Depakote ER(750 mg) Cymbalta (30mg) I have been diagnosed with ADHD/ADD ( both of them), hypothyroidism, allergies (seasonal and no-seasonal), and from my weight of 120 have gone up to 160. I gained twenty pounds from the synthroid, and have put on twenty more pounds after that… I have severe sugar and salt cravings before my period, but not all the time.
Asperger people can have mood problems but not bipolar disorder. I know one who takes zyprexa as a stabilizer and cipram too. It isn't like you have fever so you takes antibiotics full stop, in psych illness symptoms come in a package. So although you have asperger say but you manifest symptoms of mood and anxiety. It's very tricky and the best pdocs do mistakes. If i go back in time sure I wouldn't go to see a pdoc. all my problems came from the mistakes of doctors.
It leads to additional medications, often including antipsychotic drugs like Zyprexa and Risperdal that can cause lethal diabetes and pancreatitis, and tardive dyskinesia, a potentially disfiguring and disabling neurological disorder characterized by bizarre-looking abnormal movements." You can read the entire interview by googling Dr. Breggin and reading about his publications, credentials, etc. He has an impressive resume.
It has been a great med for meI am bi polar so I also take zyprexa. and I do pretty well I am looseing weight and I sexlife is good too. No side effects that I can report.Let me know how you progress on the celexa.
Hi- I am bipolar 1, suffer from severe migraines, have hypothyroidism and am going through menopause. Of course I take a cocktail of meds to correct these problems. I am more stable than I have ever been but am experiencing terrible physical side effects. I believe it is my medications fighting each other. I have 3 specialists. A psyc, an OBGYN, and a neurologist. none of which are able to treat all of my disorders.
problems thinking, extreme dry mouth, a feeling like there was a lump in my throat. I'm out now, and I'm taking 2.5 mg of Zyprexa. I feel much better than I did, and no longer have symptoms of thought blocking, dry mouth, flat facial expession, etc. In short, I no longer feel psychotic. The problem is, ever since that day that the depression was "gone" I can no longer feel certain things. The depression never really returned, but then neither did some of my other emotions.
My son suffered from so many of the symptoms you have before his pituitary tumor was discovered, especially extreme photophobia, nasal allergies, anxiety, food sensitivities, and symptoms of hypothyroidism, such as dry skin and weight problems. His doctors didn't have a clue. Then I took him to an Endocrinologist because I knew he had to have some kind of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis disorder. (I did internet research). Unfortunately, I was right.
So, it is possible that in your specific case, your migraine attacks are being caused by your hypothyroidism (and possibly prior to the hypothyroidism, by the thyroid cancer). I guess then if this is the case, it would just be really important to make sure your thyroid meds are always at the correct dosages, which maybe means getting blood work done prior to each prescription being filled at the moment, just until things settle from the surgery. It's nice to meet you!
I have been on Wellbutrin, Clonezapan, Xanax, Lorazepam, Buspirone, Clomipramine, Seroquel, Lexapro, Zyprexa, Zoloft, Cymbalta, Ativan, Risperdal, Paxil and Paxil CR (I believe that's all....as if that's not a lot). I have also taken Avelox, Ru-Tuss, Prednisone, Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, Lortab, Amoxicillin, Ambien and Lunesta. Currently I take Prilosec everyday (since 14 for acid reflux disease), 20 mg of Ambien to sleep or Chloral Hydrate to sleep.
I used the pool just to tred water and do resistance exercises I the last 3 time I went I started feeling like I need to eat then with in minuets I was feeling compleatly drained and exausted and like if I did not eat and drink asap I would pass out. I ate healthy food and drank a sports drink, only to feel just strong enought to barly make it home.
Please come on in and make yourself at home. This is a very good place to be if you want to get off and stay off Tramadol.
The new doc recommended gradually coming off the Xanax and has prescribed Zyprexa (5 mg daily) and 100 mg of Trazodone at night. (I actually took this last medicine years ago but took myself off of it....) I am so sick of trying these types of drugs and having them make me worse. If you were me, would you take these? Any experiences with them and Graves' or hyperthyroidism? I hate to keep whining, folks...
ASAP if your really hungry yet losing weight, dizzy, weak, diarreah, anxiety, headaches, increased cortisol levels, serious serious fatique and sweating i'm betting on Hyperthyroidism. if not that Hypothyroidism, both increase inter-cranial blood pressure which would cause pain behind the eyes and headaches, even severe migraines. If you have a thyroid disorder then it is not one bit strange that ambien helps you.
I am on no medications currently and have never been treated with hormones though I was taking Zyprexa (long story) and max'd out at 250 lbs and am now 193 lbs. I still have some midsection visceral fat that I need to lose. 24 Hr Urine Toxicity test was OK except for Arsenic at 44 mcg/spec range 0-35. I live in a big city so maybe the Arsenic is from the water?
